Mourning Day 2

Today was the second day of the national 3-day mourning period.

This evening we had several people from the Foreign Affairs office over for dinner. While talking we learned that "entertainment" has come to a stop for the 3 days. KTV (karaoke), clubs, etc. are all closed. The sport matches have been delayed until Thursday. It really is a time to be still. China's websites have no color presently. After dinner, we turned on the television and watched live rescue shots. There is no programming whatsoever except earthquake news. Pretty disturbing to see footage of actual rescues.
While there was no moment of silence, I am sure prayers were lifted up all over China and the world. The picture is a prayer written at the city remembrance night last Friday. People here are desperate and need Love.
China is in mourning.
